Rotary Beats Kiwanis at 100th Anniversary Golf “Fun Day”
It was a perfect sunny day at Broadmoor Country Club when 76 golfers paraded to the tee to the music of 76 Trombones played by a “live trombonist” as part of our 100th Anniversary Celebration. Rotary Golf started the same year as our Club in 1913. (See all the photos here).
Hole prizes for Indianapolis Rotarians went to Harry Bunn for the (shortest drive); Evan Bedel (Straightest Drive); and Leon Mordoh (Longest Putt). Overall, Evan Bedel (66 net) tied for first but placed second on a tiebreaker; Todd Lugar (69 net) came in fourth; and Jason Breaux had the “highest gross” (125). Evan Bedel, Todd Lugar, Bruce Glor, and Mark Weir spearheaded the Rotary Golf Team as we beat all the other Rotary Clubs in our District and, most importantly, KIWANIS!!! Our top 4 players averaged 69.5 and Kiwanis averaged 75; we beat them by 23 strokes.
We had 24 sponsors; thanks go to Somerset CPAs (Melissa Farmer & Debbie Hyde), Fifth Third Bank, the etica group (Ron Baker), Bedel Financial (Evan & Elaine). Barnes & Thornburg LLP (Kendall Millard), Harrison College (Ken Konesco), Mr. Handyman (Allen Furrer), Indianapolis Zoo (Kathy Cookerly), Economy Plumbing (John Strong), Williams Randall Marketing (Charlie Williams), Cruise One (Janet Harris), Don LeClare, Bill Batt, Indiana Historical; Society (Frank Eagan), Indiana State Museum (Linda McCabe), Connor Fine Painting (Nathan Connor), Henry C. Smither Roofing (Bill Bubenzer), Ruth’s Chris Steak House Downtown (Ramona Adams), St. Elmo’s, One America (Dan Shelley), Triton Brewery, John Dewey, Subway, and International Entertainment Bureau (David Leonards).
League prizes were also awarded: Evan Goodman (5th), Mike Crowley (4th), David Leonards (3rd), Steve Ivy (2nd), and Dan Shelley (1st and our “2012 Golfer of the Year”). 37 different golfers participated in League play and at the Brickyard Outing this year.
Remember, “It never rains on Rotary Golf”!
